While this game might end up as one of the top bowl matchups of 2014-15, the Miami Beach Bowl – at least for some – won’t be remembered for the quality on-field play. Instead, the bowl is likely to be remembered for a postgame brawl that erupted after Memphis intercepted BYU quarterback Christian Stewart to clinch the victory.
Here are a few videos and clips of the postgame fight in Marlins Park:

Mike London will return as Virginia’s coach in 2015. The school announced the news on Wednesday, just a few days before the Cavaliers’ rivalry matchup against Virginia Tech.
London was on the hot seat in 2014, but Virginia has a 5-6 record entering its finale against the Hokies.
In five seasons at Virginia, London is 23-37 and has one bowl appearance.
London will be on the hot seat once again in 2015, but it seems the Cavaliers are trending in the right direction. A bowl appearance next year would help secure London’s long-term outlook in Charlottesville.
#UVa admin has granted Mike London a reprieve. Now if they really want to help, bail on '15 opener at UCLA.— David Teel (@DavidTeelatDP) November 26, 2014
